smilla rahmanir rahim In the name of Allah subhanho wa Taala the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful and hamdulillah All praise is due to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah he was, he was happy he had many blessings and salutations upon those messengers who were sent by the almighty from the very beginning all the way down to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah bless them and bless their companions May Allah bless the companions of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his household May Allah bless all those who have
struggled over the centuries in a way that they served the good cause they passed on the good message such that it has gotten to us and today we're seated here waiting for good motivation and good food inshallah.
May Allah bless every one of us and grant us goodness and May Allah bless our offspring, those who come right up to the end and grant us all steadfastness and contentment, happiness and goodness, I mean, my brothers, my sisters,
I decided to start with verses of the Quran. For indeed These are the words of the Almighty they bring about a calmness, even to those who don't understand them, the words of the Almighty and he chose that they be revealed and said in the Arabic language, and we cannot question him we cannot say why we may understand a few reasons we may not know any reasons, all that is irrelevant. It is in Arabic, may Allah subhanho wa Taala. Grant us an understanding your happiness and contentment and mine is closely connected to how well you understand your makeup. If you don't understand your maker, you won't understand why you're on earth. And if you don't understand why you're on Earth,
you won't be happy, no matter what happens to you. Because on Earth, we have struggles, everyone's life is filled with struggles. Each one of us seated here today, we have different challenges on different levels, some perhaps, social challenges, some economic challenges, some perhaps, perhaps physical or health challenges, and whatever else it may be all to a different degree. But the almighty promises us, I won't let you be burdened with what you won't cope with. You will scrape through even if you're going through great challenges, but we want you to know that it was chosen by us. It was chosen by us for you. If I were to ask you, who is the best of creation, the most noble
of all messengers of Allah, what would you say? What would you say? Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam? Who are the others who are the best? Jesus May peace be upon him, Abraham, may peace be upon him, Moses, may peace be upon him? Are those not some of the best who existed? Yes, indeed. Go and look at their lives, filled with turbulence filled with struggle filled with challenges filled with enemies filled with people who tried so hard to bring them down. What happened?
They had the almighty with them, and they were dedicated, they never gave up.
And that's why ultimately at the end, they were victorious. Take a look at the persecution of the Prophet Jesus May peace be upon him. He was persecuted. And they even tried to murder him. The same applies to the Prophet Musa alayhis, Salam Moses, he had the tyrant known as the pharaoh who was claiming that he was a God. He used to tell his people I don't know of a deity for you to worship besides me. What arrogance?
Anyone troubling you ever calling themselves God? I don't think so. They cannot be a person harassing you in your life worse than the pharaoh himself cannot be.
She see some guys are saying no. Which means you don't know. I hope it's not your father and mother in law, someone Allah protect us. We become little devils in our own homes, my brothers and sisters, we become Pharaohs and tyrants. Subhana Allah just because our attitude stinks sometimes. Ask yourself as much as I want to be motivated to go through the challenges of this world and the world is filled with challenges. I need to be motivated not to be an obstruction in the lives of others.
are you harassing someone else? If the answer is yes, no, one day you're being harassed by someone slightly bigger in their capacity of harassment than you.
May Allah say goddess, they all had issues, but they dealt with them. The Almighty gave them the strength, be dedicated. Don't give up no matter what comes in your direction. You will manage you can manage you have managed, where will you a few years ago, I asked that question to every one of us. Where were you? 20 years ago, 10 years ago? When was your father, your mother? The previous generation of your own lineage? Where were they? What was their condition?
Can you not say with a smile?
I'm in a better position than I was some time back
My great grandfather, where he was in where I am so kinda, I'm in a much better position. My grandfather where he was my father where he was 30 4050 years ago where I am today some kind of law.
What we can afford is much more. The houses we live in are much more luxurious than theirs but we're not happy. The clothing we have much more expensive than they could ever have afforded in a whole year. But we're not happy. The shoes we have so panela we're lucky to buy new pairs every so often when they had hand me downs. Some of us had hand me downs.
What else? They couldn't afford a trip. anywhere we go on holiday, every holiday if we don't, there is a small kiama in our homes. Yes, we can angry we get upset. You mean their holidays is going nowhere. You crazy? Yeah, we're playing games this holiday. Right? Maybe we're watching. I don't know if your
May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us forgiveness. We've got so much we're blessed. Things are getting better. But for us, we can only see that they're getting worse, because we're focused on the wrong things.
Look at the holistic picture. Look at the whole image, look at everything, things are getting better.
But no, we're focused on one, two or five things. That's why for us, things are getting very bad.
You lost a million, but you're forgetting about the 5 million that you just turned Subhanallah you will be surprised I want you to do something my brothers and sisters this evening, or right now in your minds, you could do it. Look at how much money you have spent on yourself and your family in the last 10 years. And check the figure You will be shocked what Allah gave you
look at the figure, how much did you spend? Take it, check it out. It probably exceeds. If not 10s of 1000s perhaps maybe hundreds, maybe some of us smiling. Those are the ones who have gotten to the millions. And you're sitting and saying you know what? Life is tough. What we just you just spent a million pounds in the last 15 years and you saying life is tough. There are people who are living on five pounds 10 pounds in a month. And they are thanking Allah like you can't imagine Subhan Allah, my brothers, my sisters, it all depends on what you're focused on. If you're focused on the issues, life will be an issue. So Allah, but if you're focused on the goodness, and if you're thanking the
Almighty, and you're really feeling the blessings of the Almighty holistically, it will draw you closer to Allah.
That's what ultimate success is all about. Focusing on that which the Almighty is giving you, I want to take you through some of what the messengers have been through to be inspired by the best. We don't doubt that the almighty loved them more than us. Jesus made peace be upon him. No doubt, Allah loves him and loved him more than any one of us here today.
Mohammed peace be upon him. We don't even ask, we don't even say because he's level, the best of creation, the most noble of all profits. According to us. That's what we believe. But take a look at the struggles. Those of you who've lost children, may Allah make it easy for you.
And if you know of others who've lost children,
don't be hard on them. You don't know what they've been through. The Almighty has chosen them for an act of worship, he did not choose you for
that is sub patients upon a totally different level. Totally different level. And Allah says this child was always ours, we gave him or her to you temporarily. The child was always supposed to be taken back by us at the time we took the child back, we only wanted that child to be a test for you. And we wanted to see how you react, giving you the opportunity to react in a good way so that you can earn your paradise because that child was always meant to be in paradise.
Who do we belong to? Who do our children belong to? Who do our parents and siblings belong to? Who do our loved ones belong to Allah? When something happens? That is terrible. Sometimes we're taught to remind ourselves by saying in lillahi
wa inna La Jolla, La Jolla What does it mean? We say it a lot of the times we don't even think of what it means someone says so and so passed away.
Like if it's like, oh, gosh, you know, they passed away. No, it's a statement. It's an act of worship. You just said, we indeed all of us belong to Allah, not just the one who passed away. Me too. We all belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we're all going to return to Him, not just the one who died, not just the bad thing that happened, every one of us is going to go back to the maker. So what are we saying? Yes, it's going to be tough. It's going to be difficult. But don't worry, the Almighty will not burden you with more than you can handle. If you're saying I cannot manage this. Allah says Hang on, we know you can. We know you can. We will strengthen you get closer
to us. Trust us, be convinced, have that conviction. Keep going.
And you might ask, Oh Allah, how long should I keep going for? That's a question.
Allah says, keep going until the door opens.
I was walking in tescos half an hour ago. You know, the big one in gallions reach, doing my last minute shopping before I fly out. Mashallah. You got to take a little chocolate for the spouse, right?
You might say, Well, why did you have to go to a grand tescos just for a chocolate variety? My brothers and sisters, you can choose right?
And someone met me and asked me a beautiful question.
And I told them, keep going, don't give up what you're doing is right. keep knocking the door one day.
That's a walk away. Subhana Allah, Allah He those are facts, the Almighty tells you, you knock that door, which door the door of the Almighty your maker who gave you the life
there is nothing that moves on Earth, except Allah says it is upon us to sustain it completely. Not you I was referring to everything, including the ends, you don't know are in this venue. They may be more in number than us. Do you know where they are? I don't. You don't. They may not be here who knows smaller creatures than ends. Allah says who provides for them, we we guaranteed we will give them what they need. The problem is, we want more than what we need. We want what we want. Beyond the need.
If we're depressed, what are we depressed for?
You have a wife used to looking? You know when we say May Allah grant us good, you know a good spouse. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless all those who are looking for wives, with wives, and you hear a loud Amin. Most of those guys are married man. Allah forgive us.
I was giving you something rather than concentrating on it. And thank you, Allah, you're everywhere else and you start thinking to yourself, gosh, what I've got is not good enough. Allah says, I gave you what you need. I didn't guarantee that you're going to have what you want.
That was one example. Okay, let's see, the men are not amused by it at all. Take it,
take it understand it. It really is factual. Sometimes, in your quest to get what you want, you actually mess up what you need.
Sometimes, because you're greedy, because you're selfish, you end up spoiling the need, while going for the ones
I don't want to give the example of the gambler. But one of the things I have to say is how he loses his money after winning a little bit is he says, I'm gonna put all my money in here because imagine what I just got and then boom, even what he had is gone. And he comes out bankrupt in debt. May Allah grant us all ease.
So Allah says everything that moves on Earth, we guarantee we will provide for it.
Did you hear that? And you really think Allah is not going to provide for you when he's provided for the ants that are smaller than the mosquitoes being provided by your blood and may come to Africa by the way.
May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us ease if they keep coming for you. It means your blood is the Rolls Royce. They want you they want your blood, you you're eating better food than everybody else. The mosquitoes are in the corner and they will go in so they leave everyone else in the country you you know Allah has written the sustenance of the mosquito. By the way, that doesn't mean you don't
Let me know you don't do something about it. It doesn't mean you need to become so falsely pious and say, no problem your sustenance is written you can have in no way.
My brothers and sisters, the point I'm raising is in life.
We think that our struggles are the only struggles without realizing that Allah tells you if you want ease in your struggle, help others with similar struggles or with other struggles. And at the same time, when you look at others, don't judge them because you don't know what struggles they're going through. So
you look at people you don't know what their surroundings and circumstances have thrown at them. And you're busy saying, This guy. Look what it looks like, forget about it. You agreed, you make him feel important. You make them feel good and you walk away if you can help you help Allah will help you listen to what Allah says through the blesses lips of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, Ghana love houfy O'Neill Abdi McConnell, Ab dupioni.
Allah will continue to be at the assistance of one of these slaves meaning any one of us for as long as he is or she is busy assisting another. You want the help of Allah help others. For as long as you're helping others, Allah says we will continue helping you.
You want 50 pounds, released 50 p see what happens. The problem is we cannot release the 50 P. Why? Because then we won't make the 50 pounds. So your whole equation is wrong. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us
unfuck Adama Lake, spend our son of Adam,
spend our son of Adam and Allah will recompense you, Allah will spend on you, meaning he will give you to spend on a good cause. But Allah teaches us Yes, don't give everything don't give your necessity away.
You should not be wasteful. And you should not be extravagant.
But at the same time, make sure that when you're giving people a charity, you also take care of your own needs.
I need this, for example,
you see a person who requires a piece of clothing,
and you decide to take off the only pair you have and give it to them. Now you're moving around naked. That's not correct.
Allah says, strike the middle path. You need to be balanced. You need to know you love your children, we all do. But what does love mean? Does it mean let them do whatever they want.
If that's what love translate says you're gonna pay a price.
But you love them, you keep telling them you love them, but you remind them out of love.
You remind them out of care, because you care for them. That is love. It's a balance.
And you don't abuse them
while claiming to correct them.
That's not good, either.
It's a challenge.
So Musa alayhis salaam was faced with the Pharaoh. It was in possible had it not been for the selection of Allah. Allah chooses every one. And a lot chooses the challenges that he will throw at everyone. I promise you, if you knew why you came to this earth, you would rise up to the challenges and smile at them and say, You know what? I don't look at how big my problem is.
I look at how big the maker is.
I have a lord who's bigger than all these problems, he will help me and I'm going to start with a single step as impossible as it seems. I will succeed. Ultimately, you keep knocking until the door opens which door to those. Either things happen the way you wanted them. Ultimately all there is is created ultimately or you die with that hope. And Allah says you passed your tests. You get eternal paradise. Nobody on earth is having it easy. Completely.
You might say no, I know a few you don't. Have you known them. You would know they have their own struggles. But struggles are on different levels. For us if we're pricked with a small middle phone, or cut with a little glass piece somewhere
It's like the end of the world.
The emergency services have to close the street and stop everyone just because you need to get to the hospital, you need to rush because of a small piece of glass that might have gone into it. I'm not saying it's right or wrong, I'm telling you what happens. Every the world came to an end. And there are others who had a law that's like minor to them. It's like nothing happened. They have a little home remedy. It's done. And the next best thing you know, they've dipped their finger into tea leaves. I wonder why they do that
we ever had
to stop the blood. Don't try and please, I'm only telling you what others do. Okay.
You tear open the tea bag and put your finger in blood stops. Your blood doesn't convert into chamomile tea or anything. By the way.
Some of the tea lovers already have blood that's like, you know, tea. But my brothers and sisters, what is interesting is there are people who go through more than that. And for them, it's by the way, which by the way,
may Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us ease. Allah says, You know what,
you get up you face the challenge you will manage Musa alayhis salam was told
when he was going with his wife and he struggled you know, I, I had a beautiful talk about marriage. And I spoke about how we have a disease in a lot of cultures where we believe that the oldest and the oldest must marry first, and then we come down, and the next one and the next one. So if the first is not married, forget about the second and third, that is actually prohibited in Islam, to think that way is prohibited. That might be the ideal, according to you, and you can work that way. But if the sustenance of the second is written before the first, or the third, or the fourth is written before all three of them, let it happen.
If that is your rule, and you still say in your own old culture, that the oldest must marry first Come with me, even if the third is already ready to get married, and someone is already there. But you're saying no, because your older brothers and sisters are not married. I want you to apply the same rule with jobs with money with sustenance. This one's got a job. No, you can't have that habit. First the oldest must get the job. Do it.
It is both are both are known as this sustenance. Your marriage is this, Oh Allah provide for me. The wife is included has been included in that. Allah give me this husband and wife included in that draft children are included in that draft, they are part of your sustenance.
Are you ready to say my third son cannot have a job? My third daughter cannot have money because the first one doesn't have it? No, we're not ready to do that. Why? Because pounds dollars. That's what's involved. Money. I don't mind the little child getting the money. It's fine for as long as there's money. That's how greedy we become. But Subhanallah you go back and look at what Allah says if Allah decided that we're going to provide for the last one, the second one, the third one, whatever. Alhamdulillah Yes, we have a dream. Under normal circumstances, we would love it that the oldest child gets married first, then the next and the next. That's ideal. That's beautiful. It's
nice if it happens. But the point I'm raising is for you to think that's the only way or that is the way is wrong.
Where do we get that from? I was talking about the Prophet Moses a few minutes ago.
When he left in fear of being persecuted by the Pharaoh and he is the Beloved of Allah. Imagine he was driven out of his own hometown and city and whatever else. He's driven out and he's gone. SubhanAllah running away from the federal.
I don't think we've had problems anywhere near that problem.
And to us, we have stress. Allah says we've written your sustenance somewhere else. what's about to come? He had no clue. No clue. We would suffer anxiety attack upon anxiety attack. What's gonna happen tomorrow? What's gonna happen this evening? There's a wedding. What am I gonna wear?
you're stressed about what to wear. There were people who are not even stressed about their lives that were at stake. Why?
I don't mind wearing the same thing over and over and over again for as long as it's neat, clean it properly and educated.
Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding.
So he was very helpful. He helped even those who he didn't know. Do you do that?
question. Do you help people who don't know Muslim non Muslim it becomes irrelevant. They're human beings part of your family in humanity.
Do you reach out to them a kind word, a little smile, perhaps, you know, a helping hand, a little offering of a good word, etc. Hope you have a good day. And you look at them. They're like, Oh, gosh, I think the world's coming to an end why people are becoming nice again.
But we are so miserable. And in that miserable behavior, we make others miserable, because we just look at them dirty. Look what happens. They look at us and like, they blink their eyes as though the detergent is going to come out of their eyes and clear your dirty look. That's not going to happen.
And to help people than to reach out to them alone will help you here is the Prophet Moses. He had no idea. But one thing he knew I was gonna take care of me Why? I'm not an evil person. I'm not evil. That brings me back to this issue. Are you evil? Do you hate us people? Do you trouble someone in your life? Do you really pick on someone, if you do change your life? Do you really have some dirt in your heart, if you do, you need help clear your heart, clean it, you will not receive the help of Allah with a dirty heart. That's why you struggle, you need to clean it first. When you clean your heart with the help of Allah will come to you. Even if you've just lost a job, you will
feel so happy. You know, my lord knows I'm probably going to earn more than any job can ever give me go and read the story of Steve Jobs. I call him the mother of all jobs.
See what happened? They dropped out not just him. There are others wealthy people they've lost. They tried again and again and again. fourth, fifth, sixth time they came right. They became billionaires had they been still in the first job they wouldn't have gotten to where they had.
Understand. Trust Allah but have a good hearts. When we say have a good heart cleaning don't have us people don't trouble. Imagine if Allah telling you you want my help help others. What do you think Allah will do to you? If you're traveling others Subhanallah he'll sought you out love may not do that to us, in your heart. Apologize to people, maybe always you don't have to interact with people who are toxic, but at the same time. You don't have to have dirt against it, just leave it. It's okay. I don't want to really mix with this brother or the sister because you know what, it's really stressful. I really don't feel at ease. But it's okay. We're at peace.
Try that out. Then my brothers and sisters, listen to something interesting.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says the Prophet Moses, he went
to a place he didn't even know. When he got there. He saw all these people have, you know, helping themselves to the water with their flock of sheep and whatever other livestock they had. And he saw two women at the back waiting for all the men to finish doing what they were doing, quenching the thirst of their flock. And he went to them respectfully and he says, Why are you guys not? You know, why are you just waiting for everyone?
Galatia he had the Rodney
cabbie. Allah says in Surah, two causes that you know what? These women told him. We're just waiting for all these men to go away so that we can comfortably do it. You know, our Father is an old man, he's unable to do all of this, we're going to do it.
they went after being helped by the Prophet Moses made peace be upon him in an amazing way. They finished so quick. They got home father says you guys are home so early. And you know what they told him the story. In the meantime, what had he done? Listen, there is a very important point I'm going to raise from this. He helped strange women without knowing who they were know asking, what's your name? What we would do today? What's your number? What's your Snapchat? What's your Instagram? What else is there and so on? So did you really help just for the sake of allow? Or did you help for your own sake?
It's like I had someone come and tell me.
Nothing for the sake of Allah.
Did you hear that? That's a good statement, isn't it?
Are you sure?
for my own sake as well? A little bit Subhana Allah, Allah forgive us. Did you hear that?
don't contaminate it, as you may. You need to know what it means to love someone for the sake of Allah. someone whom you feel is praying, trying to inch closer to Allah, you love them for the sake of Allah. Did you hear that?
No matter who they are, they don't need to be outwardly pious or something else but you see their struggles and you see their dedication. And you see the way they're inching closer to Allah. You feel a feeling within you have
Love for the sake of the Almighty. See, Musa alayhis salam help them he didn't even know who they were a little while later he makes a drop in neelima
Oh Rob Oh my robber he says oh my lord my maker. I am in desperate need of any goodness you are going to send in my direction I'm here at place a town I don't know people I strange man. And I don't know, but I trust you and I know you made me you will provide for me. I'm convinced I have this conviction.
What had he just done? He just helped people what type of help, huge help How many of you would actually take 50 to 100 cheap and go and
go and try you know, go and quench the thirst of these animals and then give them back to the people and tell them goodbye? Nothing, nothing. I didn't get anything from you. We wouldn't even want to see a sheep.
strange thing is we're about to see leg of lamb
in a few moments, I hope that's on the menu inshallah. See they're nodding their heads. You know, today you're going to be getting something special for the forehand from here, and his entire team and all of those who are struggling, you know, throughout this day,
they definitely promised us you're going to have I think was if roast lamb was what was it? I better end my talk.
But these were real live labs. We don't want to see the animal when it's alive. But when it's not there, it is roasted and everything will pick too much. Right? You say the name of Allah. Do you think Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us here. He says, This man had helped people and he was a big man. You know, he was loved by Allah.
When he made the dua, Allah says, you come to me and spam, I'll come to you an entire foot. You come to me walking, I come to you rushing. It's impossible. You just need to come to me at all. Come walking, come on your toes. Come on your knees. come to you. It's a matter of time. Remember, I told a young boy, you know you fulfill your Salah five times a day against all odds and do it happily with a smile. You find the help of Allah. Three days later, he came to me says I still haven't found the help of Allah. But I've been reading all my Salah three days I said, Brother, you're 20 something years old. Oh, I can't remember his age. But whatever your age is, all these years, you
haven't even been dedicated. Come on, just give it 14 days at least see what happens. Your doors will begin to open. So Pamela, I wonder what happened thereafter. I never heard from him again. I'm sure he's okay.
But sometimes Allah gives you instantly, instantly look at Musa alayhis salam. He just made the call. I am desperate in desperate need of anything. Moments later, the same women come back SubhanAllah.
And they say our father's calling you. We told him the story. He says okay. He doesn't even know where he's going.
They go they meet a man. This is a beautiful story. They go they meet this man, he meets this man. And the man says, what's happening meaning in our language? That's what we would say right? He asked him respectfully. And hussaini salaam narrates the story with utmost respect. He says, you know, this happened that happened. It is reported in one of the narrations that when he was walking, he told the women you know what I'd like I'd like to walk in front of you. You guys can walk behind me, just so that you know, I can be in front. So panela perhaps he just wanted to protect his gaze. They figured out that this man is so honest, he's so good. He's hard working. They figured out he was
hard working because of what he did with the sheep. And they figured out he was honest because of how he walked with Him and how he talked to them. So when they got there, one of the girls tells the father
Yeah, but is that in favor of my niece that Jonathan? You mean? Our father? Why don't you employ him give him a job.
The best person you could actually give the job to is a person who is strong, hardworking and honest. To this day, if you want to employ someone or you if you're employed by someone successful only come with these two qualities. Yeah, you got to be hardworking and honest. If only one is that you will fail. You can be very hard working but you're not honest. Gone. You can be very honest, but no hard work gone. The Marriage of the two is what will grant you the success. So my brothers, my sisters, listen to what happens. The father realized that the statement is such that Subhana Allah
it shows the keenness of my daughter towards this guy, some Anima what would you do as a father? Do you know what he says? He didn't say I'm giving you a job.
key hacker, Natalia Hajime Allah, Giovanni samanya, ijazah.
I want to get you married.
This is the point, not to the eldest, he didn't say to the oldest of the two. That's what I was saying moments ago, if it was asked in a lot of cultures would say, my oldest daughter.
And he said, No, I'm interested in the second one, sorry, go back.
But that wasn't it. He was also a messenger of Allah, according to some narrations that was trying, may peace be upon them all.
He says, I want you to get married, I want to marry you off. This is against everything a lot of cultures have today stand for the father of the bride, the father of the girl is directly communicating with a guy and telling him in a few moments that you know what
any one of my daughters come, I want you as a son in law of mine. I think we, we would break old taboos, we'd have to go back to Pakistan to find out the hits allowed. Allah forgive us or India or anywhere else, with all due respect to all of us, but you know, we are facing a crisis.
So what happened? He says, any one of my daughters, I want you to marry them on condition that you work for me for eight of these years. Eight. How many barriers were bashed just by that statement? By your father in law? What would happen in our societies if you even went and said I enjoyed it in my in laws? They say, Gosh, there are words that they use terms that they use to refer to such people who enjoy that the in laws, but there's nothing wrong. This is a cultural taboo, which is actually supposed to be thrown out of the window. You can work for your father in law. So what those better than you have worked for them. Who salaries allowances? Well, that's good. It's fine. It's
okay. I'll work for you. He ended up working for 10 years.
Wow. Wasn't that motivating? So hon Allah Subhana. Allah see the guys nodding their heads, I guess those are the ones who are not married yet.
My brothers and sisters, a lot of the barriers we face we have placed our barriers that our religion and faith have, has not placed. Stop putting barriers don't make people's life difficult. Open the doors.
in the next two, three minutes, which I'll end but the points that I wanted to raise I raised except one. What is that point? Ultimately, when he took his wife and he went forth, he was looking for light
as he's looking for light, Subhan Allah, do you know what happened?
He didn't realize he was getting revelation from Allah telling him, you're coming towards this light, we're going to give you a different type of light, you're looking to for guidance of the path, we're going to give you the ultimate guidance and we want you to go to the Pharaoh and keep reminding him that what you're doing is wrong. Turn to Allah. He says, Oh Allah,
you placed on my shoulders a huge responsibility.
I want you to help me.
I want you to help me with my brother. I need him to be with me. He's more eloquent than I am. And I need you to help me I have a little stammer or stutter. I want you to open out the way I speak to, and I want your help in every way. Allah says Don't worry, I'm with you all the way he went, he plucked the courage he had to go he went to the pharaoh against all odds and he says, Oh Pharaoh, I have been instructed by God Almighty Allah to tell you that what you're doing is wrong. You'd better stop it, etc, etc. And guess what happened? He was threatened. He was told very, very harsh words, he was actually addressed in a terrible way. It didn't deter him. He kept going. Not one year, two,
not two, but 3456. a long period of time, right at the end, who succeeded.
They had struggle upon struggle, struggle upon struggle. They were facing the greatest tyrant of the time. And guess what? A few years later they were victorious. What happened? dedication, conviction. Continue with the struggle. Lay your trust in the almighty keep going there is nothing that he will burden you with that you cannot manage. It's just
the weakness of men that makes us feel we cannot manage. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help every one of us in our own problems in our own issues and difficulties. May Allah open our doors, grant us goodness. Remember what we said this evening you want the help of Allah, clean your heart, help others Allah will help you don't stress others because that will be the source of your stress and you won't know you won't realize think good of people if you want others to think good of you.
And learn to be dedicated to the Almighty and get closer to him as the days passed. Don't go further away. We've all achieved and we've achieved a lot. We're all getting closer to the almighty get a little bit more closer every single day such that the last day we live will be the best day we ever lived with the relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala May Allah bless every one of us. kuqali Holla Holla Holla Holla Holla Vina mama
